So this monkey might just be the cutest stamp I have ever owned. He is adorable. He hangs out with some other really cute stamps in a set called Summer Fun from CC Designs. I had to get the set because of this monkey.

So this is the front of my card. Simple, simple. I used a cuttlebug folder for the front and cut out an oval with a nestie to show the monkey who is stamped on the inside. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. It is Summer Sunrise Swiss Dots (upside down) and Lemon Tart Twill.

So that would be ok for a card but I had the idea for the inside of this from the minute I saw this stamp. The little monkey legs are from a monkey in the Monkey Love set (also by CC Designs). I masked off the monkey in the tube and stamped the legs. Kind of a cute card for a summer hello.
The monkey was stamped with Pallette Noir and colored with Koh-I-Noor pencils and OMS. I used a black sharpie to make a few extra wave lines.
Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

This is so cute, Molly! I love how it opens up into the scene with the monkey. I had to buy this set for that monkey, too! *wink*
